How to Become a Tutor and Build Good Relationships

Become a Tutor and Build Good Relationships
When you are a tutor, trying to build up a clientele, you are going to want to be the kind of person that relates well to other people, someone that your students feel they can relate to, and a tutor that can relate very well to the parents of their students.

Have you ever read the book,

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie?

If you haven't, you should. This book is amazing and will provide you with a great knowledge foundation for relationship building. This book points out several important things you can practice doing in your communications with others.

Here are two things you can start working on today:

1) Say the person's first name in your conversations. Yes, it sounds really simple, but the truth of the matter is that people love to hear their name. It makes them feel like you really care about them. It also helps them pay closer attention to what you are saying. (Remember when your mother would scold you by shouting all your names in full? Like Richard Scott Andrew Harmen! You come here right now! Or maybe Shauna Elizabeth Nancy Leeman! You're in trouble now! Well, it's no fun to remember getting scolded but the example shows how you really pay attention when you hear your name)

Just remember to use the student's first name only, and not in a scolding tone (wink).

2) Find out things about your student. What does he like to do? What are his hobbies? What sports does he like? Where has he gone on vacation? Then, you can bring little tidbits into conversations with him that he can really relate to. If he likes baseball, ask him what he thought about the most recent game. You will want to do a few minutes homework ahead of time about that game so you can comment on it too.

These two things, saying the person's name in conversation, and talking about something that interests them, are two simple yet very easy things to do. These two things will help you build relationships with your students as well as with other people in your life!
